Dear Wicket (Ellen & Curtis)
Ahhhhhh this is the time to take that nice deep breath!!!!!!!!
Yes, you are ready J… it can be seen in your e-mails… the strength comes through with your comments to others who are needing help!!! You are amazing…. And stronger than you think!
Now go give Curtis a big warm fuzzy “HUG” and when he hugs you back… that’s a hug from me to you !!
I don’t remember fear…. Only a feeling of how can this be????…
He is sooooo healthy!!!! And he’s had a wonderful Wellness program and he eats right and he doesn’t do bad things to his body!! There’s no pain, There’s no weight loss, There’s no sign of this terrible disease that’s invaded his body.
Remembering our 2nd consultation…. I told Dr. Staley…. I wanted it out now and if he’d let me I’d assist him right now in taking “IT” out. He said Buddy might have something to say about us slinging him over the take with no anesthesia. J
We were all 3 of the same mind…..Let’s Lift the Hood…and Let’s Get it OUT!!! We had our surgery as soon as it was safe… allowing time for the body to heal from the biopsy… “6 weeks”… I asked about CAT scan, MRI, and storing blood. Our urologist did not recommend any of these. He said getting in and seeing and feeling the area was his best read. So ~ it truly went along with our own mind set…. Lift the Hood
I hope “OUR JOURNEY” continues to help you as you prepare for the next step in your journey. I do edit it occasionally when I see that something isn't clear... on the original posting.
Lee & Buddy
